Marx Brothers routine:

Spaulding: How much do you get a year?
Ravelli: Oh, for playing I getta $12 million a year.
Spaulding: I see...What do you get for not playing?
Ravelli: $20 million a year.
Spaulding: Well, clip me off a piece of that. And what do you get for not coming to practice?
Ravelli: You couldn't afford it... Heh... You see, if I don't practice, I don't play. And, if I don't play, that runs into money.

I'm still paying off my pledge to Oral Roberts from 1986-7, when God told him that he needed to raise $10 million or more, or else God would "take him home". I certainly didn't want that to happen. And we certainly need to give money to our celebrities when they need it.
